Commentary
With the unfortunate cancellation of the Sydney Hobart within days of its anticipated start, a lively fleet of more than 230 boats registered for our virtual race. What a pity the real race couldn't go ahead as strong northerlies suggested a race record would have been up for grabs. And indeed that proved to be the case for the virtual racers as well, with Dingo securing a hard fought victory by seconds over RICOTINA with WRmirekd not far behind. In the process, a new Sailonline race record was set, one day, five hours and fifty two minutes, breaking the old record by nearly four hours!!

After the start, most boats swept slightly out to sea to pick up the stronger winds and by midnight, after only 12 hours of sailing, amazingly the fleet was beginning to cross Bass Strait. A mid-run gybe off the east coast of Tassie took the boats back inshore towards Tasman Island with the winding picking up and boat speed averaging well over twenty knots in our Maxi for most of the run. The fickle Derwent, though, produced her usual dramas with a fading and shifting breeze making for a hard fought beat up the river to the line. The top ten boats all finished within five minutes of each other and the top 20 within ten.

Adriano's Brazil Run 2021
Adriano, who sails the SOLship batatabh, together with all his Brazilian friends bids you welcome to this amazing 300nm race in SOL's Albin 79 along their country's beautiful coastline. The race starts in Guanabara Bay, mistakenly considered a river mouth by its first explorers in January 1502, resulting in the settlement on its shore being named January's River (Rio de Janeiro). After passing Rio's iconic Sugar Loaf, the course takes racers along the north coast of the beautiful Ilha Grande to a turn for home at Ilhabela (another 'beautiful island') and a finish off the famous Copacabana beach!
